King of diamonds meaning french deck


The King of Diamonds sometimes symbolizes a soldier, or more generally – a man in a dangerous occupation, exposed to risks of injury or violent death (policeman, firefighter, roof-tiler, aircraft pilot and similar professions with elevated risks). For a young woman or a divorced woman, the isolated card means a proposal for marriage from a man in a dangerous occupation.

It also represents a blond man, self-important, haughty, fearsome, deceitful; in a word, a bad man.

It is one of the cards whose meaning depends mostly on the cards surrounding it.

So the number of its exceptions, i.e. special cards that give it a different meaning, is quite varied, as you will see below.

This card announces, having on the right a

Spade: Naughty, quarrelsome man, whom you should be wary of.

Heart: A beginning of a relationship with someone, who is not good for you. If the consultant is married: new acquaintance not to be frequented.

Diamond: Flatterer of which we have everything to fear.

Club: Somebody will try to steal from you.

Having on the left a

Spade: Obstacle in your projects by a blond man.

Heart: Serious suitor. If the consultant is old or married: loving and honest man.

Diamond: Quarrel.

Club: Advantageous offer by a blond man.


The King of diamonds placed between two face cards, whatever they may be, means: Disunity, confusion.

With the Jack of Diamonds: News from a young man in a dangerous profession.

Between two spades: Rivalry.

With the Queen of hearts: Love of a soldier. For married or elderly people: Upcoming acquaintance of an honest man, military.

Having an ace on the right, the usual meaning of the card on the left is nil. Instead, this announces, regardless of the colour of the card on the left –  upcoming trip away related to some danger or a man in dangerous business.

The King of Diamonds, between two diamonds, announces the visit of a man from out of town.

King of DiamondsUpright.  

This card, when used as a representative, denotes a very fair man, one with auburn hair, light blue eyes, and florid complexion, who, notwithstanding his hasty temper, will treasure his anger, long awaiting opportunities for revenge, or he is obstinate in his resolutions.

It moreover designates a military officer, and frequently one of fidelity to his country and its honor.

Still, it is most generally employed as the marriage card, for if it does not come out in an oracle wherein matrimony is the wish, the nuptials will be delayed or broken off.

Its synonymical signification would then be:

Alliance; reunion; attachment; vow; oath; intimacy; assemblage; junction; union; chain; peace; accord; harmony; good understanding; reconciliation.

This card signifies a country gentleman, in which capacity its synonyms are:

Country man; rustic; villager; peasant; farm laborer; cultivator; rural; agriculture.

Again, this card reversed, bears a further signification of a good and severe man, when its synonyms would be:

Indulgent severity; indulgence; compliance; condescension; complacency; tolerance; low descension.

When used as the marriage card, and coming out reversed, the king of diamonds signifies primarily difficulties and obstacles imposed in the way of entering upon or consummating the nuptial contract, and through inference vitiation of the married state, when its synonyms are:

Slavery; captivity; servitude; matrimonial ruptures; conjugal infidelity.

The face of this figure is dark, suggesting courage, and the bull’s head should be noted as a recurrent symbol on the throne. The sign of this suit is represented throughout as engraved with the pentigram, typifying the correspondence of the four elements in human nature and that by which they may be governed. In old Tarot packs this suit represented money. The consensus of divinatory meanings is on the side of change, as the cards do not deal especially with questions of money.

Divinatory Meanings: Valor, intelligence, business, mathematical gifts, and success in these paths.

Reversed: Vice, weakness, perversity, peril.
